Earlier this month, PENERGY broke above its downtrend channel resistance amid high volume.  Initially,  we  were  somewhat  apprehensive  on whether  or  not  the  bullish move would be a flash in the pan. However, the share price has proven us otherwise with its sheer resilience against the broader market which has succumbed to profit taking activities in recent days.

So  long  as  the  share  price  continues  to  hold  above  the  RM1.40  resistance-turned support; we reckon that there is a good chance that the share price may be on track for a bullish trend reversal. The 20-day SMA has also completed a “Golden Crossover” with  the  50-day  SMA,  and  we  now  look  toward  a  retest  of  the  RM1.55  resistance.

Should  this  RM1.55  resistance  be  taken  out,  PENERGY could potentially  advance towards RM1.70 and possibly RM1.94 next.
